Covington, LA – (June 25, 2015) – Archway Apothecary is now the exclusive distributor of Lunglaid™, a safe medical food emulsion with natural, highly refined fish oils for dietary management to promote leukotriene homeostasis in children ages 2-17 with persistent asthma.
Lunglaid™ initially began with research at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and later continued with successful clinical studies on asthma patients, demonstrating a reduction in asthma symptoms, reduced reliance on rescue medication, and showing improved asthma-related quality of life. Lunglaid™, as a medical food, addresses a nutritional deficiency of low GLA and EPA, key fatty acids proven to reduce leukotriene levels.
As a medical food emulsion, Lunglaid™ addresses the growing demand for safe, natural-based based alternatives to traditional asthma drug therapy with montelukast and its extensive list of adverse reactions, including neuropsychiatric events such as agitation, aggressive behavior or hostility, anxiousness, depression, and suicidal thinking. Adverse effects noted with Lunglaid™ during clinical studies at the intended dose were unremarkable, reversible and not significantly different from placebo.
